Jason Got a Christmas Card...

Jason got a Christmas card from some family friends.  It was beautiful with pictures on the front and back. But something struck him when he realized that a couple of people were missing on the card.  The couple has two kids and two grandkids.  Each of their children has one child.  The picture on the card included the couple...their children...their grandchildren - BUT NO SPOUSES OF THEIR CHILDREN.  What's up with that?  If I was the daughter-in-law or the son-in-law...I would feel really slighted.
